Glad to report that I have found the other mods. Steam is using folders on two different drives (C: and D:), some of the mods have been installed on the D: drive, the rest on C:, for some obscure reason. Whatever, at least I can build the rest of my private mod now.
Glad the Native Mod guide has help another one. Its old and most images are uncorrected for the Mod folder and airline folder but there is an update explaining that. Hope it wasn’t too confusing.
@twocflyer, thanks for the guide. It was indeed a great help, regardless of any differences, I understood enough to build a mod, either from scratch or a customized compilation like I am doing here.
Took a look into the tutorial, it’s well written, but is there anywhere a downloaded airline can be altered. Just for example, i would like to edit Air China, and make a version where i only have the big aircraft.
The subscribed airlines are in your Steam Games directory.
SteamApps → workshop → content → [game number] → [mod number]
The subfolders below “Companies” can then be copied to your native private modpack and then you can adjust the .json file to remove aircrafts you don’t need. You can do that with any airline you want.
man its not related but your airport looks awful please pop some decoration in there
So that wasn’t so hard. Made a new folder, inside the mods folder.
Took the OG mod airline. Took out the airplanes i didn’t want, and edited the JSON to update the fleet. Started the game, and they all show up under Native mods. So i made them all active. But they don’t get offerd in my save? What am i missing?
Also, instead of moving files, what happens if i just edit the file in the SteamApps → workshop → content → [game number] → [mod number], take away the airplanes directly in there and edit the JSON?
lets see your folder set up and the Json for the airline (the one next to the logos and aircraft folders)
Also editing in the steam folders ive never done before. So not sure how that will work when the mod is updated or when you leave and load team again. Never tried it so I can’t say. I prefer to have natives myself, I only subscribe to copy and then I unsubscribe myself.
- Is mods folder. 2 is inside the Air China.
I see your problem
It needs to go:
then > Air China
then > Company with ModData.json, & Icon.png
then > Airlines
then > Air China
then > Aircraft folders & AirChina.json, AirChina.png, AirChina_Inv.png)
Right i see it, went back to see how the OG was structured.
Also make sure there Is no comma after the last aircraft in fleet. thats a common mistake too
Yeah i did check that. I re did Air China, and now copied the Original file right in to mods.
…\Apoapsis Studios\Airport CEO\Mods\1941352144\Companies\Airlines\Air China
So that means the folder structure is right. Then went in, took away the airplanes, and edit the JSON, no comma after last airplane. Should work?
yeah just change the number folder 19413… to Air China and the rest rounds right.
Also you don’t have to delete the aircraft folders. just take the aircraft out of the “Fleet” in the json. Then you can add back in those aircraft at a later date if you want and the folders are still there. Only the aircraft in “fleet” in the json will show up.
Okey, will do that from now on. But Air China is still not showing up in-game so far.
And it was my fault haha, since i took away medium aircraft. i didn’t get the offer since i did not have big stands at my airport haha
Lol, thanks, will do the decorating later, Operations comes first!
